Hip and Knee conditions

The knee is a hinge joint that moves forward into extension and backwards into flexion, but also has some degree of rotation which is usually forgotten about. You also have the patella, known as the knee-cap. This structure works with the knee joint and surrounding muscles to aid in movement.
The knee joint is important for supporting our body weight, absorbing forces as our foot strikes the ground, and functionally aids our lower limbs for movement.
In this interview with Principal Physiotherapist, Sam Davison, we learn some of her top tips from recovering from a knee injury. Whether you have sustained an acute injury or are dealing with chronic pain, Sam’s insight can help you explore options that you may not have considered before.
Are your knees stiff and sore after your morning run or an F45 session? Whether you’re a professional, recreational or corporate athlete, many of you will have experienced knee pain at some stage and, boy, does it hurt! Our knees are integral for support and movement. They act as shock absorbers and help distribute the force we place on our legs with every step we take. Injuries occur due to trauma, overuse or chronic load.
